Iran today is arguably the largest exporter of weapons and training those who want to become part of the Jihad. Daily weapons from Iran kill and mail U.S. and coalition troops. The WSJ posted in July, “Iran Funnels New Weapons to Iraq and Afghanistan.” Iran will be crushed from within as their population wants freedom and abhor the fascist tenants of Sharia on its citizens.
They executed 88 people this year in different form for following the teachings of a Seventh Century lunatic and pedophile.
As of this writing she appears to still be alive, the charges of adultery have not been dropped, she may face hanging in the near future, this form the “religion of tolerance and forgiveness.
Report: Number Of Executions Carried Out By Sharia Courts Increases For Third Straight Year
ROME – The use of the death penalty to implement the Sharia, Islamic law, continues to increase year by year: in 2010 there were at least 714 executions, against 658 in 2009 and around 585 in the previous year, in 13 countries with a Muslim majority, many of which ordered by religious tribunals.
The sentences were carried out by hanging, decapitation and execution by firing squad. These figures emerged from the 2011 report presented today in Rome by the association ‘Nessuno tocchi Caino’ (Hands Off Cain).
Worldwide 24 of the 47 countries with a Muslim majority practice capital punishment; 18 of these have a judicial system that explicitly refers to the Sharia. There is only one Islamic country, Iran, that applied the death penalty in 2010 and in the first six months of 2011 to minors who were under the age of 18 when they committed their crime. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Mauritania and Egypt also sentenced minors to death, but did not execute the penalty.
The Sharia has been applied through hanging, decapitation and execution by firing squad. In Iran, Nigeria and Pakistan people have been sentenced to death by stoning, but there are no reports of actual executions by this method, though stoning is used without regular trials in Somalia, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Hanging, often in public, is the most widespread method. The Iranian version is particularly cruel: in this country a crane or a low platform is used that causes the convicts to die a slow and painful death. The only country to apply decapitation is Saudi Arabia. In 2010 there were 27 executions, less than half of the number recorded in 2009 (at least 69), but the number of decapitations increased significantly in 2011.
